Mallgoers Get Into It With Security

This incident took place at the Citadel Mall in Charleston, SC. Even though the two guys with the camera turned around immediately and walked to the exit when they were told they couldn’t film, the reaction of the mall security guards was really in the extreme. At one point a guard comes after them, yelling out orders for them to stop, even putting his hand on one’s shoulder.

Which I can’t help but think, what’s the point of getting that hot and bothered? What is about malls and harassment? Understandably, it’s private property, but what is the big deal about taking a photo inside one?

    Lawyers need to see stuff like this. The types of lawyers who will purposely set up a sting, get the guards to overreact, then sue for damages.

    Normally I don’t approve of that kind of behavior from attorneys. But maybe, at times, it has its place in society and helps correct imbalances.

    Side note: I wonder how many security cameras are in that mall filming people 24/7?

    i wonder what they would do after you looked like you were filming with a phone that didn’t have a camera on it?
